The double chin. It’s always there, every time you look in the mirror. Unlike other areas of the body the double chin cannot be hidden by clothing. It can be caused by lifestyle, age and sometimes genetics. But now The CoolMini™ applicator, created by Zeltiq® Aesthetics, the company that created CoolSculpting®, has been cleared by the FDA to noninvasively treat smaller pockets of fat, including the double chin.

The CoolMini applicator uses the same technique as CoolSculpting, a non-invasive, targeted cooling procedure that kills fat cells underneath the skin in the desired area, and freezes them until they are eliminated. Once they crystallize, these cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body. No surgery, no knives, no needles.

The CoolMini applicator’s small size, shape and curvature allow it to comfortably fit in small areas such as the double chin. The procedure involves little to no downtime, and results can be achieved in as few as one to two office visits.

While patients may see results as early as three weeks after the procedure, the most visible results can be seen one to three months following the procedure. If patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits, they should enjoy longtime results from the CoolMini applicator procedure.

This procedure, developed by Harvard scientists, doesn’t affect healthy skins cells. The required temperature to destroy fat cells is warmer than what would result in damage to skin, muscle and nerves. The CoolMini applicator doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. It is safe and effective.

The CoolMini applicator is  available at Southeast Sculpting & Rejuvenation. Call 803-396-2727 now to schedule a consultation to see if this procedure is right for you.
